Logan · 01/03/2013 at 16:11

struggling with my mid pricers in fwd line. Already locked in siposs but im still not sure about jack watts, Josh Jenkins or Lecras. I currently have Watts but that could change any minute. Thoughts anyone??

    Kev · 01/03/2013 at 17:35

    Most will be running with varcoe/byrnes. Varcoe for mine. Not sold on Jenkins, need to see more. Fan of LeCras, but not at the moment. Want to see him get some scores on the board.

@mbandyle · 01/03/2013 at 16:14

Not able to slip Lower in the mids Jock? He tore it up in the first nab round

    Smithy23 · 01/03/2013 at 20:19

    Yeah defiantly should be on the cheet sheet will be a bargin

    Kunna · 01/03/2013 at 20:21

    He's been flying under the radar but for mine hes th best take …. Real high quality player, in the 3 games he played for Freo last year i think he top scored on dreamteam (Fremantle average) Different game but surely worth a look at

    PluggersGuts · 01/03/2013 at 22:54

    Looks to be an astute choice mate. Moloney another 1 to keep an eye on for similar money.

    jockreynolds · 02/03/2013 at 19:44

    Yep he should be in there – will be making a change for v4

Shimma · 01/03/2013 at 16:17

Hey Jock, your thoughts on Cam Pederson vs Vardy? Which should I get? Also, Jack Steven as another mid price Mid?

Paul · 01/03/2013 at 16:18

Thoughts on Andy Otten Jock??

    jimbotraralgon · 01/03/2013 at 16:34

    no for me Paul…..just dont see evidence of a natural progress this year.

    happy to be proven wrong but I expect much of the same.


jimbotraralgon · 01/03/2013 at 16:20

you have done it again jock me old sock.


jimbotraralgon · 01/03/2013 at 16:32

no ellis? Thoughts on him Jock?

After crouching cut him loose I think I will pick him up on the rebound………he is my new supercoach crush along side newman.


Murph · 01/03/2013 at 16:34

You're not convinced on Knights? Is there a better option for cheaper who will get as much run through the centre?

    Kev · 01/03/2013 at 17:37

    Don't see Knights running through the mids all that often season proper. Tigers midfield runs very deep. Also not convinced he'll play a lot

      Murph · 01/03/2013 at 18:14

      Who would you prefer for the same price?

        Kev · 02/03/2013 at 09:32

        Varcoe (268k) is popular. Some POD, but riskier choices are The General Patton (242k), Harper (275k), if he gets off the rookie list, Ricky Petterd (240k) could be a sneaky one, and, don't laugh, but Sheeds loves big o'hAilpin (252k)

        Don't rate Byrnes (230k) but he's another to consider.

        Hope that helps a bit

Andrew · 01/03/2013 at 16:36

gday jock,
what is the community's opinion of wright (adelaide fc) and harbrow (g.c. fc)?

I think harbrow will be freed up on the wing with the recruitment of broughton to take his spot on the half back and he's also a cheaper option to broughton.

And with wright it appeared he was allowed to run through the middle in nab rd1 and looked comfortable there.


    @MRB37 · 01/03/2013 at 17:05

    Wright could be a decent POD, as a FWD only though. Could be a decent choice instead of Dustin Martin.

Tim · 01/03/2013 at 16:38

Great work here jock, the other day I randomly got this really bad feeling about Broughton so I traded I’m out for Jack Grimes and now thinking Dyson Heppel also, who should I have in my team? Also if there is anyone please say:)

@MRB37 · 01/03/2013 at 17:11

Not at all concerned about Angus Graham pushing Jenkins out, he's only insurance for if Sauce goes down with an injury and so they can have a #1 ruck for when they rest Jacobs a couple times this year.

Davetheman · 01/03/2013 at 17:19

What does POD stand for

    Kev · 01/03/2013 at 17:30

    Point of Difference – off the top of my head. Shane Tuck. Not a lot of people pick him but he can still pump out big scores

      SCaddict · 03/03/2013 at 15:21

      Kieran Jack would be another POD

Togg · 01/03/2013 at 17:38

Ricky pettard instead of chrissy knights? too bad about monfries i had him in and now he is out for siposs

    Kev · 02/03/2013 at 09:33

    Petterd is still on the rookie list I think mate

Ram-Rod · 01/03/2013 at 18:02

Spewin about Gus Monfries… Now onto Siposs like a fat kid on a smartie

    @MRB37 · 01/03/2013 at 18:23

    They reckon he'll be good to go for Round 1, just a bit of an interrupted pre-season is all. Still think he'll be fine come round 1.

    Te Ninja · 01/03/2013 at 20:11

    Same here. Reports are a couple of weeks though arent they? Maybe not round 1. But surely we keep an eye on him?

    This fat kid wishes there were more smarties though. Not 100% confident in any mid price fwds justifying their price bar Varcoe. But he HAS to be in most teams so no POD there.

TheBIGShot · 01/03/2013 at 18:15

Its hard not to have any mid-pricers in your side. A must for 2 and possibly 3 so great tips Jock you cheat sheeting sensation. Patrick Karnezis (bris) did well the other night, a boom on the boy, & Lycett (fwd) worth a look early as a fwd whilst Nic Nat tackles his bone.

Maybe the other missed mid priced ruck is Robbie Warnock. We know the big guys take a bit longer to mature. This is his 6th season but only 55 games. At $350k had interrupted 2012 after showing a bit the year before. Can get plenty of taps 30-40 a game when fit and his tackle count went up as season progressed in 2011. 7 scores over 100 in 2011 and ave of 86sc but his injured games pulled his average down. This kid's a real smokey for those not going with Luey. Apparently training well. Close to taking him myself.

    Dools · 02/03/2013 at 21:39

    WOW, what a write up… Warnonck is NO but if this pans out I want to be the 1st to say i TOLD YA SO..LOL

@chillburn · 01/03/2013 at 18:33

i've only got one in each line. the green ones. heppell, moloney, berger & varcoe.

Lar · 01/03/2013 at 18:42

Why do u guys think if Nick Lower?

    SCaddict · 01/03/2013 at 19:05

    I like Lower and Koby Stevens. Both are in my team at this stage.

SCaddict · 01/03/2013 at 18:55

How about Setanta O'hAilpin as a R3 mid priced RUCK/FWD swingman? Didn't stand out in NAB Rd1 but seems Sheeds is fairly keen on giving him plenty of game time.

Also thought that Zach Smith is worthy of consideration as a mid priced R2 selection especially if Leuey struggles in the NAB Cup. Looked up and about in NAB Rd 1.

    Te Ninja · 01/03/2013 at 20:30

    I for one am seeing the same player that Carlton delisted. Depends if he does anything notable with his game time if he gets it. But I’d still be leaning towards what the rookie cheat sheet is saying. Rowe or Currie to start (or both, but I dare say no POD’s there).

    Zach Smith…. One to watch for sure if his NAB 1 form continues or gets better. I’m new to this sport fantasy wise (kiwi). But, has there been any breakout analysis similar to the one posted a day or so ago on Ruck age/exp? Surely Rucks deviate from the Breakout Zone findings…. don’t they?

      SCaddict · 01/03/2013 at 21:06

      Yeah I like the looks of Currie a lot with only has Goldy ahead of him and Scott may play both in some games so presently have him as my R4. Rowe was impressive in NAB Rd1 for sure but I'm just concerned there are too many Carlton bigs ahead of him. Nonetheless will certainly be monitoring him closely over the next month.

      Yes conventional wisdom says that talls and ruckmen in particular take longer on average to develop. Haven't seen any analysis on that specifically though.

Jon · 01/03/2013 at 19:26

Any thoughts or opinion on my set up

DEF 3-1-2

MID 5-1-2

RUCK 0-1-1

FWD 3-2-1

Cap left $101,200

Break out players I can’t decide to have

In starting Line-up. Any suggestions?

Def – D Heppel, J Watts or S Atley

Mid – B Moloney, L Parker or C Beams

Ruck – M Leueberger, Z Smith or N Vardy

Fwd – D Martin, T Varcoe or S Byrnes

    Jon · 01/03/2013 at 19:29

    One more thing…. who would you choose
    M Murphy or A Swallow

      Tom · 01/03/2013 at 20:49

      Definitely A.Swallow

    Lar · 01/03/2013 at 21:19

    Swallow will be the better pick

    Jon · 01/03/2013 at 21:35

    Thanks guys… I have swallow at the moment. But I’m keep a close eyes on Murphy for he can get 150sc points if fit.

      Kev · 02/03/2013 at 09:39

      Murphy can't handle a tag yet mate. Until I see otherwise I'd be taking Swallow everyday of the week.

      No such thing as a hard tag in NAB cup games, don't get to excited if Murph pulls out big numbers

    deza · 03/03/2013 at 13:39

    i like your choice of Smith in the ruck. SUNS have a nice first 7 weeks where he won't come up against too many of the gun ruckmen. I see him getting back to 2011 form and you are guaranteed he will play most games.

daine · 01/03/2013 at 21:30

Hey jock,
Tossing up between Broughton and Heppel at this point in my back line
Who would you choose at this current point?


    Jock · 01/03/2013 at 22:17

    I reckon I’d probably go Heppell mate

Philby · 01/03/2013 at 23:56

D Rich in the mid, good value potential elite. Love your work Jock looking forward to seeing how the lists look just before the start of season proper.

cozza · 02/03/2013 at 00:31

hey there Lords and Jock especially, could i please get some feedback on my current team layout?






    Brett · 02/03/2013 at 07:40

    Very interrupted preseason for pav, maybe swap him for Ryder/roughead and open up ruck swing w rowe

    The Old Dylan · 02/03/2013 at 09:15

    Heard someone on here say that colquhoun might not get much game time… Watch port’s NAB games to see if he will, or if he is too small.

    Try to get Goddard down the back, there is plenty of gold in the mids this year and stuff all it seems in the back and forward, so any big guns that can swing and play mid have no place in your mid!

    Kev · 02/03/2013 at 09:46

    Daniher is too expensive to be sitting on the pine. Hird is teasing us, he won't play much at all this year imo.

    Your mids are fine, that's where the points are. Agree with Old Dylan though, get goddard down back for heater (he'll do something stupid no doubt) and help yourself to a different premo midfielder.

    Rucks look a bit weak on paper, not sold on luey yet. Leave them for now but watch NAB cup closely

    The FranklinShow · 02/03/2013 at 11:17

    agree with the other lads re: Goddard needs to be in back half.

    Pav to Cox gives you a bit of cover in your rucks which like mine appear to be weak.

    Siposs worries me and would definately monitor his NAB cup form.

    Really solid team though great base to work from.

The FranklinShow · 02/03/2013 at 10:55

Would really appreciate some thoughts re: draft 15 team.

Backs – Goddard, Gibbs, Birch, Heppell,Vlastuin, Pittard, B Goodes & Terlich
Mids – Gazza, Swan, Pendles, Kennedy, Fyfe, Crouch, O'Meara, Viney, K Mitchell, Kommer
Rucks – Z Smith, Leuy, Rowe & Currie
Fwds – Lance, Rockliff, Dusty, Watts, Varcoe, Macaffer, Mayes, Lee

My rucks is where i have gone low but from what I saw with Smith last week looked like he may just be able to pump me out some big scores.

Jocky boy what your thoughts on Z Smith, seems to have been flying under the radar some what. Cracking site, great work mate.

    jimbotraralgon · 02/03/2013 at 11:18

    good side fella.

    have to say that I am not a fan of the Zac at all.

    like the look of the forward line for sure


      The FranklinShow · 02/03/2013 at 11:43

      Thanks Jimbo.

      Yeah I had not really give Smith much thought at all until last week after his NAB 1. I had goldy originally but with the extra cash I saved was able to get G Ablett into the middle.

      Will track for the rest of NAB cup.

      Cheers mate

        jimbotraralgon · 02/03/2013 at 11:51

        well safe to say getting gazza is more important than goldmember.

        I just think you will be looking at zac in your side all year quietly cursing yourself.

        you could turn pendles or swan into a cotchin or murphy and downgrade eith mayes or vlads and that should get you to mummy or goldy.


          The FranklinShow · 02/03/2013 at 12:04

          Thanks for the thoughts jimbo, appreciate it. Those moves are defintaely going to be the best way to free up some cashola.

          Zac is my big concern in my squad and I'm sure by the start of the season I will have chickened out and gone with a more reliable option in R1.

          Cheers mate.

            SCaddict · 02/03/2013 at 14:10

            Yeah currently in the same boat. Have both Leuey and Zac as my R1/R2 so that I could really bolster both my forward and backlines with quality de facto mids that will hopefully remain keepers all season.

            If Zac could make $100K for me then may be able to upgrade directly to a premium ruck who has a few off weeks early in the season. But he will need to continue to impress in the remaining NAB Cup rounds or I'll probably bail on him too.

              jimbotraralgon · 03/03/2013 at 22:39

              Hey SCaddict…

              want to post your side and we can help out with the Zac problem.


                SCaddict · 04/03/2013 at 01:39

                Thanks Jimbo. Like everyone else here it's a constantly evolving beast as I gleam ideas from others so I've now brought in Maric. It's a rookie midfield madness/mid-priced hybrid strategy as follows:

                DEF: Goddard, Shaw, Gibbs, Newey, Vlastuin, Goodes, Colquhoun, Terlich

                MID: Ablett, Danger, Parker, Moloney, Whitfield, K.Stevens, Wines, K.Mitchell, O'Meara, Viney

                RUCK: Maric, Leuey, Currie, Rowe

                FWD: Cox, Zorko, Rocky, Dusty, Lecras, Varcoe, Karnezis, Macaffer

                $180K in the bank.

    DC9 · 04/03/2013 at 19:09

    on it

Richoman_12 · 02/03/2013 at 13:22

Pavlich, Ryder, Hale or Roughead. Out of these who would you pick for a forward line option

    jimbotraralgon · 03/03/2013 at 22:33

    would go Roughy.


SCaddict · 02/03/2013 at 13:54

I currently don't have either in my team but that said I'd probably lean towards Roughie.

    Tom · 02/03/2013 at 14:22

    NO! Always choose Hale. He's going to have a ripper of a year!!!

Shimma · 02/03/2013 at 16:18

Which duo: Crouch and Heath Shaw OR Jasper Pittard and Jack Steven

    JPP · 02/03/2013 at 17:53

    Crouch and H.Shaw for me.

    jimbotraralgon · 03/03/2013 at 22:32

    definitely crouch and shaw Shimma.


matteroonie · 02/03/2013 at 22:26

Hey Jock, any love for Clay Smith? Looked a bleeding ripper Friday last. I'm hoping the dogs will "mould the Clay" this year.

Billy · 02/03/2013 at 22:30

G’day community. I have some questions regarding the rucks this year. My current rucks are goldy, leuenberger, currie, rowe

1. Are we all set on goldy as R1 this year, or is it worth spending the extra cash and getting Maric/mcevoy/jacobs, or perhaps a second mid pricer like jenkins/pederson/vardy?

2. Who is the best ruc/fwd premium to go in the forward line?

    SCaddict · 03/03/2013 at 00:43

    1. I'm not quite sold on Goldy just yet although he appears to be a R1 selection for many. Currie is a legitimate contender for his position unless Scott plays both of them in most games which is certainly possible as per today's game.

    Although not as popular I'm seriously considering Zac Smith who had another solid game statistically today against Goldy/Currie.

    2. I reckon Cox if you can afford him.

    jimbotraralgon · 03/03/2013 at 22:31

    hey billy.

    I started with Goldy then to Mummy and now I think it is worth spending the extra cash and pick up Cox.


jacko · 03/03/2013 at 12:29

thoughts on gibbs or birchell?

    SCaddict · 03/03/2013 at 14:32

    Both are great players. Gibbs is a lock for many teams including mine now that he's playing in the midfield but I'll probably look to bring Birchall in mid season when hopefully he's a little bit cheaper.

Belcha · 03/03/2013 at 13:02

Brougten back into calculations??

SCaddict · 03/03/2013 at 16:46

I know it's only pre-season but both Karnezis and Cornelius have me very interested as FWD mid pricers. At this stage I have Karnezis in my squad and will be watching them both very keenly next week against the Pies.

Shannon · 04/03/2013 at 11:16

Any thoughts on Krakouer? Cheap price tag and showed mad skills during the finals. Considering dropping Shannon Burns to make way.

    SCaddict · 04/03/2013 at 13:53

    He's been in and out of my team but is currently out. Reckon there are better FWD mid pricers out there such as Karnezis, Cornelius, Varcoe, Lecras, Petterd, Siposs, Knights etc

W P E · 04/03/2013 at 14:06

Maybe Chris Masten could have a breakout season. His pre-season form suggests that he could be in for one. Any thoughts.

BundyBears · 04/03/2013 at 23:55

Trying a different tactic this year
let me know your thoughts
who’s should be in or out?
Back: Goddard stanly Gibbs
Hartlett. Atley. Plowman
(Vlastuin goodes)
Mids: ablett beams Boyd Whitfield
toumpas orouke lonergan omeara
(Wines mitchell)
Rucks: cox. Smith
(Grundy currie)
Forwards: franklin Zorko robinson
Lecras krakour varkoe
(Daniher neald)


dannyboy · 08/03/2013 at 21:34

What about kane lucas? im tossing up between him and koby stevens at the minute. who will get more game time?

    SCaddict · 08/03/2013 at 23:22

    Yes this one is driving me crazy too. I really want to fit in both but there are so many quality rookie mids that I probably can't do it. I reckon both are going to get plenty of games early.

BPP · 09/03/2013 at 16:57

Zac Smith an option for R2?

rob · 10/03/2013 at 16:43

Whats the story with robbie gray atm? Thinking of getting him in for his price?

    SCaddict · 10/03/2013 at 17:21

    Still listed as an indefinite return on the Port injury list on the comeback road after that horrific knee injury sustained last year and other leg problems.


    Plenty of value mid priced forward options out there so pick one of those guys instead and perhaps bring Gray into your team mid-season after he's played a few games and is on the bubble.

Adam Williams · 10/03/2013 at 23:44

anyone know anything on Kane Lucas?
tempted to swap him out for Koby Stevens?

Ben · 11/03/2013 at 15:18

What are everyones thoughts of Bachar Houli? Just hitting prime age and having a great preseason…..Looks fit to play all over the ground as a sweeping defender, midfielder, small forward and capable of amassing 90+ points a game @ only $444k in defence. Surely with the rise of Richmond this year (I'm expecting top 6) he is a good POD?

JocklegendReynolds! Love your work mate top shelf site love it.
I’m a Sydney Swans fan through and through and my mid price bargain has just fired for the season! With Alex Johnson going down (massive blow I think – kid was going from strength to strength) the door has been opened for Tony Armstrong. The Swans making such an impact on players from other teams turning them from fringe to senior locks and this is no different with Tony. Lots of love from coaches for his high work ethic.

He will play 90% of games at least. Unlucky to miss out on GF last year and at $244k (from memory) absolute bargain!!!

Should have kept this to myself but in the spirit of the community thought I’d share.

Plus like my team name suggests he’s a great bloke and not likely to be rubbed out for Dusty behaviour.

Hey Jock!
What do you think about Tony Armstrong?
At a price of $244,100 it is convincing. He was solid in the nab cup and I just want your thoughts.

What about Kane Lucas 217,400 had a pretty good nab cup series 343 touches in the nab final

kyle · 20/03/2013 at 18:20
